Many would argue that there's no better way to watch or play polo than with the backdrop of breathtaking scenery, the sound of galloping hooves across a frozen lake and of course the apres-polo activities. To see it for yourself, head to Asia's first 'Snow Polo' tournament from 15-20 February 2011 at the Tianjin Goldin Metropolitan Polo Club.
Asia's first snow polo tournament will be played on China's newest and largest polo field against an Alpine backdrop of ice sculptures. Six teams from England, France, Australia, New Zealand, Argentina and China will compete to take a home a trophy made by Asprey, and two matches will be played daily in a league format, 14 goal open, during the week-long event.
Snow polo originated in the Swiss winter resort of St. Moritz in 1985 and is considered the pinnacle of the polo sport for its spectacle. The game is contested by three players on each side with an orange ball slightly bigger than is traditionally played on grass.
